, Central Rupununi was arrested in Brazil back in February following a drug bust there.He explained that he has been travelling to the neighbouring country for a number of years, sometimes twice a week to purchase building material. His mother and his son live in Brazil.King claimed that the Brazilian police had busted some Guyanese in a car that contained marijuana.He said that although he had no connection to the narcotics he was still arrested since he was in the vicinity where the bust was made.“They say we are all Guyanese and they arrested everybody,” King related.He was taken to prison in Boa Vista where he remained for three months without being charged.According to King, while in prison he befriended several Brazilian prisoners who advised him to escape.“I took the chance and succeeded. It was three of us; two other Brazilians and me. I made it back to Guyana on Friday,Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys

, residents at Lethem were arguing that King’s arrest by the local police was unlawful since he had committed no crime here.They also argued that since he was not charged with any crime in Brazil he cannot be handed over to police authorities from Brazil, a country with which Guyana has no extradition treaty.By this time King’s wife Amoline and others had arrived at the station.“I begged them not to send me back to Brazil. At the time I didn’t know what they were going to do to me because I did not understand what the Brazilian police were saying,” King told Kaieteur News.King was eventually released after local police received instructions from their superiors in Georgetown.However, one of the Brazilians who had escaped with him to Guyana was captured and subsequently handed over to his countrymen.King said that he will not go back to Brazil because, “if I only cross the border, they will hold on to me.”He informed that during his incarceration in Brazil he was not afforded a telephone call to contact his family or an attorney.King said that there are many other Guyanese who are languishing in prison in Brazil for months without charge.“They are being held for nothing. Some of them are in there for eleven months and never see court. The Guyana Consulate don’t do anything to help you, they never go to the prison to look after the welfare of Guyanese. Some people have even overspent their time in Brazilian jail and there is nothing our people are doing about it,” King said.
